England and Pakistan finally have something in common. No, it’s not cricket. It’s blasphemy. In Pakistan, you can find yourself on death row if a single Muslim alleges he saw you sitting with your backside on a Koran. In England, you can find yourself trundled away on the tumbrels of political friends and foes, guillotined by media headlines and left to rot in the morgue of a destroyed career if a single woman alleges you put your hand on her knee (or backside).

In both countries, you are guilty until proven innocent, and you may never be proven innocent. So steer clear of Mo (Mohammed) in Pakistan, or Mo (Maureen) in England!

Pakistan is the only country in the world where a person can be found guilty of blasphemy on the word of a single accuser with no corroboration. The presumption is that if a Muslim makes a complaint against a non-Muslim then the accused is guilty. Even the police and judiciary comply with this presumption. With Section 295C of the Pakistan Penal Code, a defendant is faced with a Kafkaesque trial in the brave Islamic world of judicial phantasmagoria.

England is now marching to the progressive drumbeat of this enlightened Islamic country it created in 1947. The description of sexual touching in our Sexual Offences Act 2003 is as surreal as melting clocks in Salvador Dali’s paintings or Karachi’s courtrooms: ‘A person (A) commits an offence if (a) he intentionally touches another person (B), (b) the touching is sexual, (c) B does not consent to the touching, and (d) A does not reasonably believe that B consents.’



Are there objective standards by which one can prove intention? Or is ‘intention’ to be evidenced by subjective, speculative or emotional claims? How does one define sexual in a hyper-sexual culture? What if person (A) reasonably believes that person (B) has consented to being ‘touched’ or vice versa? What if there is a rush of dopamine and oxytocin and vasopressin and both reasonably believe that consent was given until the endorphin high suddenly plummeted? What happens if the accuser is suffering from ‘false memory syndrome’?

Don’t expect to find a reasonable explanation to such questions. Rather, be prepared for a high-voltage shock. The small print in our law defines ‘touching’ as ‘any part of the body, or with anything else, and can be through clothing’. In R v H (Karl Anthony) [2005], the Court of Appeal held that contact with an individual’s clothing was sufficient to amount to ‘touching’. Statutory Warning: Hugging or shaking a woman’s hand can destroy you for life.

Take a deep breath and read the next section helpfully provided by the Crown Prosecution Service. ‘Where touching was not automatically by its nature sexual, it was possible to ascertain whether the touching had been sexual by determining whether by its nature it might have been sexual and if so whether in the circumstances the purpose had in fact been sexual.’ It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a clever lawyer to make sense of the above.

Here’s the icing on the cake! For this offence you can join Norman Fletcher ‘doing porridge’ for six months to ten years. Be very afraid! Big Sister is watching you.

No decent person will deny the ugly and odious, threatening and dehumanising nature of sexual harassment. As a reporter, I was bursting with effusive praise when police launched a campaign against ‘eve teasing’ (Indian English slang for mild forms of sexual harassment) in Mumbai. The police were protecting women and not promoting a pernicious ideology that has begun to use the law as a weapon of terror against men. The Mumbai police had not succumbed to the Left-wing hysteria that is now demanding sexual harassment to be classified as a ‘hate crime’ based on the feminist slogan that ‘misogyny is hatred’.

While Western feminazis are losing the plot on real sexual harassment and seething with faux moral indignation just because a male hand accidentally brushes a woman’s rear, a courageous Pakistani Muslim woman is insisting that Pakistan return to the dictum Ei incumbet probatio qui dicit, non qui negat (‘the burden of proof is upon the one who declares, not upon one who denies’) in both blasphemy and sexual harassment cases.

Accusations of blasphemy and sexual harassment are often used to settle scores, says Rabia Ahmed. ‘But what of the cases where there is no way to prove the accuser right?’ she asks. Just as Christians and other religious minorities are vulnerable to accusations of blasphemy, so men are vulnerable to accusations of sexual harassment. ‘Their mere presence can ruin a man, personally as well as professionally,’ she writes. ‘It is all the more important, then, that such accusations should be verified.’

But crucially, says Ahmed, ‘there is no way to verify the truth of sexual accusations made years after the event, and some very public accusations were made decades after a supposed event. Unless these are verifiable, surely it is best in such cases for the accuser to stay away from the person she accuses and carry on maintaining the silence she has for so many years, unless the accused still has access to her’. Sadly, this is precisely the wisdom the Church of England failed to take into account in its farcical trial and hasty condemnation of Bishop George Bell, as I will explain in my ‘Rebel Priest’ column tomorrow.

When the media plays judiciary and pronounces the defendant guilty, the media is guilty of slander or libel. False accusation is one reason why many cases of sexual harassment unravel before they are even brought to court. Academics point out that ‘the frequency of false allegations of sexual assault’ is one of the biggest controversies affecting the discourse related to violence against women.

An American study estimates the prevalence of false allegations to be between 2 and 10 per cent. A British study by Harris and Grace (1999) showed that 43 per cent of complaints of rape were false or malicious. During a BBC Radio 4 programme (25 April 2006), a judge expressed his belief in the frequency of false allegations. ‘It is very emotive to tell us that 14,000 allegations were made in 2004 and only 2,500 were prosecuted . . . Is it not that there are unfortunately thousands of false allegations?’

Another judge quoted in the book Sexual Assault and the Justice Gap: A Question of Attitude says: ‘I think it’s very easy to make a false allegation. It’s increasingly easy. Particularly as now you no longer have the corroboration rule. I think the very nature of the cases tends to be one word against another . . . I think there are many more cases now in which there are false allegations.’

In the ethnic cleansing of patriarchy, men are collateral damage. Teen Vogue columnist Emily Lindin tweets that she is ‘not at all concerned about innocent men losing their jobs over false sexual assault/harassment allegations’. She presses on: ‘Sorry. If some innocent men’s reputations have to take a hit in the process of undoing the patriarchy that is a price I am absolutely willing to pay.’

Feminazis have inverted the pyramid of universal jurisprudence and no longer give a damn about the oppression of women. Justice, truth and morality are on the scaffold. Power, politics and ideology are on the throne. The necromancers of feminism, postmodernism and Leftism have resurrected the sleeping spirits of the Salem witch trials and the French Revolution. England can no longer claim moral superiority over Pakistan.

    I’ve seen a statistic whereby in accusations of sexual abuse by children against those working with children as their main job or as part of their job, school teachers, Scouts and Guides, clergy, sports trainers, etc, the % of false accusations can rise as high as 80%-90%. I know that the majority of investigations made into such cases fall apart, where they are competently investigated anyway, either from evidence blatantly demonstrating innocence or from the children admitting that they made it up as an attempt to harm a disliked adult.

    Though it’s true that a significant number of investigations fall apart from lack of solid evidence, regardless of actual guilt or innocence.

    It’s certainly gravely mistaken anyway to take the raw number of those accused of sexual abuses more seriously than it needs to be. I read yesterday somewhere else that whilst the number of accusations has skyrocketed, the number of actual convictions in a Court of Law has remained quite static. This suggests that false accusations, whether from ignorance, stupidity, or outright malice are becoming more and more common.

    • LoveMeIamALiberal

      The problem with accusations made by children is that they can be planted in kids’ minds by adults, including so called professionals. Those as old as me will remember the hysteria of recovered memory syndrome and ritual satanic abuse in the late 80s/early 90s; the accusations were false and were largely created by social workers and psychiatrists suggesting to children that they had been abused. I still remember the film of the dolls these nutcases used to help children ‘recover’ their experiences, which massively exaggerated the size of human genitalia so no surprise what kids pointed to when confronted with these monstrous things.

      If we are concerned with truth & justice then no rape trial should take place without substantial evidence e.g. cctv, dna, iPhone images etc.
      If a young child is molested, then they should learn at home & at school that they
      must complain to parents/teachers/police as quickly as possible.
      That is the ideal position and one which would have been reasonable in the UK I was born in.
      Sadly, as Rotherham showed, teachers, police, local politicians, social workers are often
      corrupted by political correctness i.e. support for immigrant child molesters & rapists.

  • Colkitto03

    Yesterday saw the result of the investigation into the Rev George bell accusations and also the collapse of the Liam Allen rape trail. Both show in different ways how toxic feminism has changed our society.

    Over 70% of the population when polled regularly say men should also have anonymity when charged in sex assault cases. Indeed most of the judiciary now support this view. But as with many things our establishment elite ignore the public.

    Truth has been the greatest victim of Feminism. Ironically the greatest damage has been caused the the policy of “come forward, you will be believed” This is a malevolent ideology which is doing heartbreaking damage to innocent men. But it is the public’s faith in the integrity our Police and our Judicial system which is taking the biggest battering, that lost credibility will not come back overnight.

    • Homer Simpson

      The news of the Liam Allen rape trial completely proves the point Dr Gomes is making and the statistics he cites. The ‘victim’ who obviously ‘cannot be named’ complained that Allen (who can be named and shamed) raped her at least six times. Police withheld vital evidence. When the judge ordered that it be disclosed they showed that she continued to pester Allan for casual sex, told friends how much she enjoyed having sex with him and discussed her fantasies of being raped and having violent sex. Wow! Speak about malicious and false accusations.

      • Colkitto03

        Absolutely malicious. The fact that she will invariably not be charged with anything is counter to all natural justice.

      • James60498 .

      Indeed. What people do not realise, is that judicial system must be just and fair by necessity, otherwise it will replaced with vigilantism and blood feuds. The later is the state of affairs in hundreds of countries over the world. People avoid the state as an arbiter, because the state is seen as crooked.

      That’s why Russian oligarchs sign their contacts under English jurisdiction – it is a guarantee of a fair treatment. The alternative would be: a competition who will pay/threaten the judge and the jury more, optionally followed by a turf war.

      • KilowattTyler

        I believe that the very high murder rates in Moscow and other Russian cities in the 1990s was due to ‘biznizmen’ establishing their territories by murdering competitors, either directly or by using hitmen.
        Now of course the territories have been established so the law rather than the gun is the instrument of choice for resolving disputes.

  • paul parmenter

    When the man on the end of an accusation of sexual misdemeanour of any kind is well known, then the law does not need to be invoked. There are two types of trial: one by established judicial procedures, the other by various forms of media. The latter is incredibly cheap, quick, easy to apply, requires no knowledge of the law or any messy legal arguments or procedures and is cast-iron guaranteed to result in a guilty verdict. The punishment is also likely to be just as damaging as any jail sentence. No wonder it is the weapon of choice by so many.

    • Sargv

      > The punishment is also likely to be just as damaging as any jail sentence. No wonder it is the weapon of choice by so many.

      What surprises me about the women, who use this strategy to punish powerful, wealthy men, is the sense of invulnerability on the side of the former. If I would ever cross a path of such a person, I will be concerned with my personal safety for the rest of my life. “As damaging as jail sentence”, but IT IS NO A JAIL SENTENCE! The guy is free, extremely angry, have a lot of money still and probably connected. And as you, the accuser, already told us, he’s a misogynistic evil pervert.

      The judicial process is formal, public, and protects both parties. But a public accusation? Would a WashPo or NYT provide those women with the armed bodyguard squad for the next few decades?

      How many of the accusers will die in car crashes, muggings, unexpected cancer attacks over the next decade? Who knows.

      • Phil R

        I agree, powerful men have ways and means.

        If the police do not have the “resources” to read a phone transcript, they will not investigate an accident.

        As we become more third world, we will get third world “justice”. As anyone who has lived and worked in the third world knows, the place may have laws, but 90% are not enforced, or can be “overlooked”.

        The rich get “justice”, either with the police’s help, or more often without.

      • KilowattTyler

        In any state in which the law is there to punish political dissidents and the police are merely political enforcers, good people are the most vulnerable and most likely to fall foul of the “law”. The ones least affected are criminals (in the normal sense of the word) as these people have the skills, temperament and contacts to avoid getting caught and the least trust in legal processes. Career criminals have less compunction about resorting to the gun or paying hitmen to do their dirty work. Good people would not think of intimidating witnesses, but bad people would not hesitate to do this. By a process of Darwinian selection, therefore, the bad guys come out best.

    There is a closer affinity between militant feminism and islam than that described here. Today’s feminists flatly refuse to condemn the numerous misogynistic practices endemic in muslim society. Nonsensically, sharia-supporting Linda Sarsour presents herself as a feminist icon in the United States.

    Over here, Canadian blogger Lauren Southern recently published a film, in which she challenged feminists marching in London to condemn the muslim treatment of women. There was a lot of exaggerated eye-rolling, accompanying comments along the lines of, “This isn’t about islam” and the reliable fallback for all lefty know-nothing’s, “I can’t believe you’re even asking that!” It all rather prompted the question: what on Earth were they marching about?

      > Today’s feminists flatly refuse to condemn the numerous misogynistic practices endemic in muslim society.

      Owen, the modern movement that calls itself “feminists” DOES NOT CARE A BIT ABOUT WOMEN, not for the last 50 years or so. Rebuke them for playing along with the Muslims is like condemn modern socialist parties for accepting donations from capitalists. Both are merely vehicles for public self-promotion.

      A feminist blabing against Islam will not receive funding or political power. She might receive a very real death threat though, or public accusation in Islamophobia (that will bury her political career). So she keeps her mouth shut on the subject, and goes for soft, easy targets, like “the Patriarchal network of white men”.

    It particularly hates the UK and the US and though it can never win in the US, where 90+% of the population is Judeo Christian/Secular but it can win in the UK.

            If it is not, then all a rapist has to do is ‘identify’ as a woman since then it will be inherently impossible for ‘her’ to commit rape.

    It has all gotten rather complicated: soon you will have to take your QC with you, on a date, to get advice on kissing. Oh for those glory days in the 1950s when men and women were sane.

    • grrlpower

      In the 1950s homosexuality and abortion were illegal and women were expected to be housewives.

      How is that “sane”?

      • Tricia

        Far more sane than 2017, when we no longer can accept the sex we were born with and children are farmed out from birth to strangers. And seemingly we are left with more children than ever suffering from mental illness! Might these be linked.
        Children of the 1950’s had a mother and father and a secure home environment. Women could actually choose not have to work all hours and could concentrate on the important task of bringing up the next generation – many did this whilst working part-time. My mother was certainly never anyone’s doormat !

        • grrlpower

          Are you blaming mothers who go out to work for their children having mental illness?

          • Tricia

            I am blaming women who think they can have it all. There is a price to pay, but the children pay it.

    Why are men so scared of “female competition”?

    Today’s Millennial women are confident, assertive, independent and better-educated than our male counterparts.

    We are used to competing against and beating men in all areas of life.

    Why would Millennial women therefore settle for a life of housework and drudgery?

    If you can’t stand the heat, boys, get back in the kitchen ;o)

    • Sargv

      State-enforced quotas for female representation is a total opposite of competition. Women require quotas for top jobs, because they know they can’t realistically compete with men on merit.

      > We are used to competing against and beating men in all areas of life.

      Women in public domain minus constant state support equals zero.

      > If you can’t stand the heat, boys, get back in the kitchen ;o)

      I can’t see many boys in kitchens – it seems they can “stand the heat” just fine.

      • grrlpower

        Women-only shortlists are a necessary temporary arrangement to break up the “boys’ clubs” where male bosses were failing to achieve gender equality fast enough.

        Once male-dominated, macho workplaces have been eliminated, we won’t need women-only shortlists any more.

        • Sargv

          > Women-only shortlists

          Yep. That’s exactly what I am talking about. Inferiority is never short on excuses.

          • grrlpower

            Men have been given promotions because of their gender for millennia.

            It isn’t, you cretin …

          • grrlpower

            A lot of butthurt men are bleating about “misandry” when it’s obvious that misogyny is still the real problem in our society – as the rise of Donald Trump has proved.

          • JabbaPapa

            I wonder how may times “she” has grabbed “him” in the “pu! ssy” ?

          • JabbaPapa

            how could I when I’ve got a boyfriend?

            Because you treat this “man” as if he were your personal “fu! cktoy” devoid of personality — which of course means that “he” is simply just another element in your psychosis.

          • Paulski

            Would you say your boyfriend suffering a fake accusation and convinction for rape be a ‘price worth paying to overcome the patriarchy?’

            If it isn’t do you think other men should pay the price?

            We always ensure we have mutual consent before each sexual activity.

            So he DOES have the full choice in the matter then?

          • grrlpower

            I said he “doesn’t mind”. We use a consent app every time, like most couples I know.

          • Sargv

            You said “not that he has much choice in the matter”. So does he have a choice or not?

            Of course he does.

            He’s not small. He’s 5’9 and 140lbs which is hardly “microscopically diminutive”. He is also a warm-hearted, kind and generous person.

            In the 21st century, it’s no longer unusual for women to take the lead in relationships. Plenty of Millennial men I know are like my boyfriend. That doesn’t make him any less of a man – in fact I think the sign of true manliness is not to feel threatened by strong women.

            That makes him more of a man than any of you.

            This is a not untypical pattern: An aggressive, arrogant, haughty domineering woman paired up with a quiet, warm, generous man. Hammers need anvils.

            If both parties were equally arrogant, haughty and aggressive the pairing would fly apart in short order. If both parties were warm, kind and generous the pairing would stand a chance of success. The only other way a pairing can be successful is if one party is arrogant and aggressive and the other is submissive.

            All-female quotas are a sign of public, or semi-public sector.

            It is hard to be fired from the public sector for being incompetent. It’s easy to be fired from the public sector for being accused in discrimination.

      Yesterday we saw a triumph of ‘diversity’ in action as a young man accused of rape was found not guilty despite the political correctness enforcement squad (formerly known as ‘the Police’) deliberately withheld evidence against him.

      Presumably grrlpower you defend this travesty and support the concept that when ever a woman cries rape a man is automatically unquestionably guilty and that there isn’t any need for the inconvenience of a trial save for sentence.

      As we hear now the calls from the Fascist Left for the re-establishment of death camps for anyone daring to disagree with the ideology it can’t be long before the sistas believe that any man accused should be instantly and summarily executed?

    • Homer Simpson

      I prefer the heat in the kitchen. The best chefs are men.

    • KilowattTyler

      The article is about the destruction of legal order, notably the destruction of the need for objective evidence when a person is accused of an offence and the elimination of the ‘innocent until proven guilty’ principle.

      Whether someone is ‘confident, assertive, independent, well-educated’ or not until now has been irrelevant when an accusation is made and someone is brought to court. Someone’s success or otherwise in life is irrelevant to their being guilty or innocent of a crime.

      The fact that you lurch straight into a diatribe about female success vs, male failure shows that you are utterly incapable of grasping the points made in the article. You see EVERYTHING in terms of power struggles. You are in fact typical of the hellish people found in the managerial/professional class, people whose only real emotions are megalomania and greed.
